July Squares # 6 – Blue – – Butterfly

Blue squares adventures with a Lensball

This is a month of blue! It’s a fun challenge created by Becky of “The Life of B”, and each day we show something blue. The only rule beside blue, is that the photo MUST be SQUARE!

As an added bonus, I’ve found songs with blue in the title or lyrics. 🙂

Thanks, Becky!

This is a pretty blue & black butterfly with his wings wide open. He’s sitting on a broad green leaf.

My daughter took this photo when they went to a butterfly exhibit here in town recently.

“Butterfly”, by Aqua, is a cute little song I found. It’s by the same group that had the hit single, “Barbie Girl”. I couldn’t find much else about this song, but here is a short stanza of the lyrics:

Ay ee ay ee ay
I’m Your little butterfly
Green, black, and blue
Make the colors in the sky

Three Things Challenge The Warning

Standard

Three Things Challenge – The Warning

***

https://lightmotifs.wordpress.com/2019/06/25/three-things-challenge-pl132/

***

These are the prompt words for today. Thanks so much for hosting this fun challenge, Paula! 🙂

Recent prompt words:

organ, attic, watermelon

kindergarten, oak, champagne

***

They had been warned many times, but the kindergarten kids didn’t care. They thought it was just a joke, and so they kept on with their fun and games.

Every generation before them did the same, and it eventually became a yearly tradition for the town.

The Watermelon Festival was always held in the month of June, while the sun was hot, and everyone wanted a break…something fun to do.

And so they would gather under the old oak trees in the town park. The children would run and play, giggling at their elders warnings.

Soon, from the open upstairs attic window of the old mansion located there on the park grounds, the eerie organ music could be heard. It was the requiem they were waiting for…for the person who’d grown the largest watermelon.  It was time to cut them open. Those sun ripened fruits, sweet and red, and juicy begged to be eaten.

The mayor called for attention, wishing everyone a pleasant day, a profitable year, and again repeated the oft told warning.

The ceremony began with the popping of champagne corks, sparkling bubbles poured into the grown-up’s glasses, and toasts were made.

The children were given huge slices of the watermelons, and they ate, dripping juice all down their arms, with sticky smiles. The warning went unheeded.

Don’t eat the seeds! You may be the next person sacrificed for growing the largest watermelon in your stomach.

I Found a Kindness Rock!

Standard

I Found a Kindness Rock!

***

We had lunch today at the Dairy Queen here, and as we came out, there was the pretty cool rock right by the door. Someone must have just left it. I was so happy to find it! I do find one every now and then, and also paint my own to leave for others to find around town. I posted my find to the FB group “West Texas Rocks”.

This rock is palm sized, and is swirly painted with greens, blues and orange.

Now, I’ll re-hide this one next time I’m out and about. 🙂

Sunday Trees – Yard Sale Trees

Sunday Trees – Yard Sale Trees

https://beccagivens.wordpress.com/2019/06/02/sunday-trees-394/

***

We were out going to yard sales on Friday, and here are some trees I saw.

The first was kind of unique…tall fake palm trees. They were made onto a tall pole, and covered with a felt like material for the tree trunk and the palm leaves of green and tan. I think the lady sold them while we were there, as I heard her say she’d put a sold sign on them.

The other tree was in the yard of one of the houses. It’s a pretty green with thin leaves, and little pink flowers all around. It was in their front yard by the brick archway.

Hungrily, I keep checking the clock.

Why is time so slow?

I’m so famished I can barely think

My hunger brings me low

Promptly served meals are what I need

Or fainting I will go

What time is it now…I have to look

Excruciatingly slow I know

***

That’s me every few hours. I’m almost always hungry, and the timing of meals with sugar control of diabetes is pretty crucial. Ugh!

Yesterday, at a restaurant, we got our whole meal for free. That’s because we used a special coupon. We did leave a nice tip, though.

Then today, we checked our fast food purchase after we got home with it, and they’d included two extra chili dogs. They didn’t charge for them, either.

Free food is always welcome, especially when I’m so hungry! 🙂
